The Zoo and Aumsville Corn Festival

A month or so ago (I know, I'm a bit behind!) my mom took me and the kids to the zoo. I haven't been to the zoo in years and Lily (and of course Jameson) had never been either! We had a great time and the weather was perfect too. It wasn't super hot out and there was a nice breeze. We stayed for 4 hours and still didn't see all of it! I was ready to go though-pushing a giant stroller all over the zoo wore me out! But we all had a really fun time!
She loved her own little entry!
Lily and my mom!
They are both ready to explore the zoo!
Cowgirls (and a random kid in the background)
Getting ready to ride the train around the zoo
Jameson loved it-well, it's not like he knew what was going on. But he was happy as usual!
I love my kids!! Jameson lovin' on his Nana!
Playing with some lion statues
Future drummer?! She actually had a good beat! She wanted to touch all the animals but all that was available for her to touch was this goat! And the next day we all went to the Aumsville Corn Festival! It was a fun and free (besides food) event and it helped us stay busy while AJ worked!
Waiting for the parade to start. And yes, Jameson is still at the stage where anything and everything goes in his mouth-including a closed container of sunscreen!

Jameson enjoyed the parade mostly. Once the fire trucks and ambulance came by with their sirens on (those things are loud!!!) he cried and cried. I felt so bad, but covering his ears was not helping! So, I took a picture....

I know, I'm so mean! But you gotta laugh a little bit right?!

Lily loved standing with her Papa while waving at the floats. Her most favorite part was picking up all the candy that was being thrown out! There was one point where there was so much candy around her feet she just kinda froze and didn't know how to pick it all up! She gave her candy bag to my dad while she grabbed fistfuls of candy! You had to be there but it was quite funny!

She wanted to continue waving even though it was a bit loud for her ears!

So much candy she doesn't know what to do with it!

After the parade we went to the park in Aumsville where there were booths of food and other things to look at. There was this awesome creek that ran around the perimeter of the park! I really wish we knew this was there earlier because it would've been fun to go there with the family and swim around! Lily loved it!

As you can see I wasn't brave enough to go in the water, but my mom was!

It was such a fun weekend of activities we don't normally do! Thanks mom and dad for taking us out!! :)
